MIDI Channels for MIDI OUT with JACK

• Apr 27, 2015 - 17:47


I'm new to the forum, and I wish to say a big THANK YOU for developing and mantaining this great free software!

Now my problem:
I have a lot of VSTi and I've tried succesfully to use JACK to let them play with MS.

BUT how can I set the needed MIDI Channels? Now all the VSTi play all the notes of the scores: see please the attached file to check my setup...

Do I gather you are running Windows?

If so - which version?

I see you are using Carla to route MIDI - it may be better to route direct.

I need to check up on the VSTi's you are using before I can give you a definitive answer, but this is an area where I am gradually gaining expertise so I am confident I will be able to sort you out eventually :)

Thank you for your prompt answer, and sorry for my carelessness!

I'm on Windows 7 Pro SP1 64bit, and now I've understood my mistake: Pianoteq responded to ALL midi channels! Now I've corrected it, and all the VSTi play correctly.

Another question, if you have the time and patience to answer: I use loopMIDI (see attach): why I don't see the loopMIDI ports in the routings (not in JACK nor in Carla)? Or are the MIDI I/O ports in Carla (see Carla.jpg) related to the MIDI Devices seen in the last attached jpg?

Thanks again!
